Description 

Lilac: We had our Lilac formulated to make it the most realistic that we could find. This lilac really sticks in CP soap, unlike most lilac scents. It is a magnificent light floral scent that is sure to prove a best seller for you.
Quickly thickens liquid soap clouds then finishes honey colored.

Performance in Cold Process Soap: Like most florals, this fragrance does accelerate trace. It discolors to a honey tan color.

Love the smell
I actually got this to use in things I make for my sister as it's her favorite floral. It nearly brought a tear to my eye because it reminded me of the lilac "bushes: (they we as tall as the first story of the house I grew up in) in our backyard. I haven't used it yet because I am concerned about phthalates. Are they bad? Where can I learn more about them and what can or can't be done with them?

Hi Michelle!  I'm so glad you love our Lilac Fragrance Oil and it brings back such good memories!  There are two kinds of phthalates, there are bad phthalates, 7 of which are classified as CMR's (carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxicants).  These kinds of phthalates have never been used in the fragrance industry.  Though there is another phthalate, Diethyl Phthalate which can be called the "good phthalate," which is the kind of phthalate found in fragrances.  It has been extensively tested and has been found to be "not harmful," "not a CMR," "not a skin sensitizer," "not a skin irritant" and "not harmful to the environment." I will email you personally to discuss this further!

Beautiful lilac
I know florals can be difficult, but I love lilac and decided to give this one a try. I was fully prepared to race through the mixing given the other reviews, but I didn't have one ounce of trouble with it! No ricing or soap on a stick. I didn't plan any swirls, had a higher percentage of olive oil, mixed my colorant first, soaped at room temp, and had plenty of time to put in the mold after stirring in the fragrance. I decorated the top with lilac flowers that I piped out from a cake decorating kit. The whole effect was pretty and the soap smells great!

Mashed Potatoes
Well, for New Year's Day I got mashed potatoes, and not intentionally. I've been soaping for about six months, and really love Brambleberry and the fragrances; have had mostly successes. But not with this one. The fragrance itself is lovely and just like lilacs. My hopes were high for a nice, spring fragrance. Upon pouring in the fragrance oil, my batter instantly "seized" and "riced". More like, lumpy mashed potatoes. Tried adding my pre-mixed colors and stirring. No avail on the consistency. As many have said, glopped it into the mold and it's fingers crossed at this point. Bramblebery, you have to reformulate this one. I was so disappointed (and a little angry) I tossed the rest of the fragrance. That's the Sicilian in me, most likely.

Hi Munimula! I'm sorry this fragrance wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, this fragrance did accelerate. To help slow this down, take 1 oz. (basically equal amounts of fragrance oil to fixed oil) liquid oil out of your recipe and heat it up to 100 degrees. Then, add your fragrance into this oil. This simply dilutes the fragrance oil’s initial acceleration. You can also add the oil/fragrance mixture earlier than usual. Rather than adding the fragrance at a thick trace, you can add it at the first sign of thin trace. Always hand stir the fragrance/oil mixture in with a fork/ladle and never, ever use a hand blender for problem oils. Lastly, raise your temperatures to about 110 to 115 degrees. This will help to keep your mixture more liquid than at a lower temperature. If it starts to rice, you can stick blend until it's smooth. Read more in the Soap Behaving Badly post. You can also use that acceleration to create a great design! See how in the Layered Lilac Loofah Cold Process Tutorial. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!

Great for crockpot soap
I love this scent just the best and my customers feel the same way..However the ricing is so bad with in cold process. But for crockpot soap it rocks!!! Just lovely and I can still make it pretty using two colors.The high flashpoint is great for it and the scent lasts..Great in other products too.I give it a 5 rating because it works so well in crockpot soap.

Great in CP!
This is a fantastic FO for cold process soap! It has a slightly powdery note, but very pleasant. It was a big hit with my female customers of all ages. It does accelerate so be sure to color your soap batter before you add this fragrance. I have a couple of bars from a batch I made 4 years ago and the scent is still strong! highly recommended FO!
